Small but Mighty, AirTags Have Massive Promo Potential
Every day, it seems like I’m searching for something. Whether it’s my keys, phone or sunglasses, something’s always lost. But, lucky for me, I’m not alone. According to a survey by smart location company Pixie, the average American spends 2.5 days each year looking for lost items.
Losing items is expensive, too. Each year, we collectively spend $2.7 billion replacing misplaced possessions. At least once a week, people lose TV remotes (45%), phones (33%), keys (28%), glasses (27%), shoes (24%) and wallets/purses (20%).
Nearly a quarter of American say they lose their house or car keys at least twice a week. More than 60% of respondents say that frustrating searches for misplaced items regularly cause them to be late to work or school. Losing things can also lead to arguments. One in three say that they get in fights with their significant other when things go missing.
Losing valuables is not only frustrating, but it’s also expensive and a waste of time, which is why tracking devices such as Apple AirTags are finding a growing market. According to a 2021 survey by gadget company SellCell, over six in 10 (61%) iPhone and iPad users intend to buy the new AirTag.
When potential AirTag buyers were asked what they intend to track with the device, they said keys (42.4%), pets (34.8%), luggage (30.6%), bike (25.8%), purse/wallet (23.3%), Airpods case (19%), and even their kids (15%).According to Statista, there are nearly 1.8 million active AirTag users, and if they already have one, they’ll probably get another. Of those buying AirTags, 57% say they would get the $99 four-pack bundle.
While unwanted tracking is possible, 78% of Apple users are satisfied with how Apple handles privacy with AirTags. With built-in security, you will receive an alert if an AirTag is detected nearby. But who will actually use an AirTag?
Though many attribute forgetfulness to age, Millennials are generally twice as likely to misplace items over Boomers and a third more likely to lose items compared to Generation X. Boomers are the most responsible generation with more than 55% claiming they haven’t lost their keys or phone in more than two months compared with 23% for Millennials.
